Programme Highlights 

Additive manufacturing (also named 3D printing) refers to the technology of fabricating objects through the deposition of a material using a print head, nozzle, or similar printer technology. The first construction 3D printing (C3DP) system was introduced in 1997. However, C3DP technology is still in an infant stage after almost 20 years, and very limited research studies are available in this domain. To unlock the full potential of C3DP, it is important to explore how this free-form printing feature can be used to create something that cannot be fabricated using ordinary construction method easily. To elaborate this notion, a new concept named CONSTRUCTION+ describes how C3DP can add new values to construction through bring innovative functions to building components. The speaker will introduce the background and concept of Construction+ and review recent development and application of C3DP in the field. Then, he will discuss how C3DP can add values to construction and demonstrate some real-life examples.
